Purim

In 2021, this is the week for celebrating Purim!

Purim commemorates the salvation of the Jewish people in the ancient Persian empire from Haman’s plot to annihilate them all in a single day.  It is said that Haman threw lots to determine on what day he would carry out his plan.  Literally Purim means “lots” in ancient Persian.

“In Jewish history, there are no coincidences.” Elie Wiesel

“According to the Scroll of Esther, ‘they should make them days of feasting and gladness, and of sending portions one to another, and gifts to the poor.” —Wikipedia
